TUNE Alice Jemima - No Diggity
Already being tipped as one to watch out for this year and with Amazing Radio voting her in at No.9 for this year alongside Shura, Spring Kings & Glass Animals, Alice Jemima is set to release her sugar-sweet version of Blackstreets classic ‘No Diggity’ via Sunday Best Recordings . The single, which appears on her debut self-titled album (released March 3rd 2017) was her initial breakthrough single which went viral and now stands at over 3 million plays.
In Jemima’s own words, ‘I first chose to cover 'No Diggity' after hearing Chet Fakers striped-back version of it - but I wasn’t planning to do anything with it, I was just playing around in my studio. But then I played it to my family and friends and they loved it, so I put it up on my Soundclound. I definitely didn’t expect it to get the amount of plays that it did in such a short amount of time, I’m still completely bowled over by that, and this is why it’ll be on my album. ‘
Jemima’s debut ‘Liquorice’ EP was released back in June 2016 to a receptive audience, with the lead track ‘Liquorice’ being selected by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens as his Tip Of The Week and John Kennedy’s X-Posure Big One on Radio-X and to date has reached over 600,000 Spotify streams. Her subsequent single release ‘Dodged a Bullet’ was play-listed at Radio 1 and currently stands at over 1.5 million Spotify streams. Her forthcoming debut album has been produced by Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Bloc Party, Foxes) and will be released via Sunday Best Recordings on March 3rd 2017.
